Baked Eggs



Baked Eggs... obviously i'm not the first to do bake an egg, but since I didn't know how to do it and wasn't following a recipe, I'd consider it one of my personal favorite kitchen experiments of all time! I recently baked an egg in an avocado which turned out amazingly (post to come!), so I knew I could probably easily bake them in our ramekinsas well. I didn't have much of an idea beforehand of what I would put in them, but i'd just had a spinach and Parmesan omelet a few days before so I went with that and OMG was it goooood!! 


Directions
I lightly sprayed my ramekin with Pam first and then put a layer of fresh spinach on the bottom. I threw in a handful of shredded Parmesan cheese on top of the spinach and then broke 4 eggs on top without piercing the yolks. I spooned a bit of whole cream on top and then topped it off with some more cheese. Lastly, cover it with tin foil. 

Bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. It'll take less time for less eggs. It's also a matter of how "done" you like your yolks. You may want them completely baked or with the yolk still a bit runny. Just lift the foil a few times to check. You'll be able to easily see how done it is. 


There can be many variations! Instead of fresh spinach and parmesan, you could add cooked bacon crumbles and cheddar cheese...sautee'd red and green bell peppers, onions, sausage, etc. 

This makes an amazing breakfast or brunch and it's so simple to make! Not only that, but it just LOOKS impressive and fancy. It's a great breakfast to fix if you have company over. 

Enjoy!

  2. I never thought of baking eggs before! Thanks so much for your recipe idea! We don't have any ramekins so I made one in a small saucepan, with eggs, haloumi, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, garlic, peas and Parmesan. It was so delicious, so easy to make, and a great way to use up the veggies I had in the fridge. Thanks so much!

  4. I added some cubed ham and this was outstanding!!! Did not have to add salt either, between the ham and the parmesan. Will definitely be adding it to my LC weekly work breakfasts!!!

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
